7 Seriously Stunning Outdoor Boho Areas

If I had a time machine, I would set it straight to 1972. I would dance around in a crowd of the young, wild and free with daisies in my hair and dream catchers around my neck. My cares would drift away to the beat of psychedelic tunes and I would be solidified in the beginning of youth culture.

Unfortunately, I do not own a time machine (darn), so I’ll have to make do with turning my home into a wild, bohemian, abode. And with the garden flowers finally peeping up to greet Spring, what better way to embrace your inner hippy than with a relaxing outdoor area?

We have searched the internet far and wide to bring you the most lust-worthy bohemian outdoor areas in existence! And if you thought these habitats were out of reach, I ensure you that they are totally do-able! Here’s how to get your own pretty, hippy den: Banarsi style…

Blue Boheme

Snorkel blue continues to reign on her color throne this season. Presented in a plethora of ditsy floral prints and geometrics, this oceanic tone truly brings this patio to life. To recreate, invest in an outdoor seating set in classic, neutral tones. Adorn your sofa with the hand embroidered table cloth in blue and add printed cushions to your hearts desire.

This table could easily be DIY-ed by painting an old wicker basket. Turn it on its head, tell your friends you made it, and watch as they gawp at your ‘American Rehab Skills.’

Even if the stars aren’t shining, give your area a constant majestic aura by winding fairy lights in nearby bushes and trees.

Hipster Patio

All this Aztec-influenced set-up is missing is a ‘Chai latte hipster’ to rock that guitar! The sheer beauty of this patio lies in it’s mish-mash of patterns, textures and ornaments. Recreate by adding random furniture that has a worn edge to it.

A simple beanbag can be transformed into a work of art with a nonchalant throw of a tropical floral scarf and a guitar. Similarly, this sofa would be anything but cool without those funky cushions!

The only rule: cactus. They may be prickly, but they have undeniable ‘road trip’ vibes and are waaay harder to kill than your standard orchid.

The Ultimate Daydream

I don’t where this outdoor dreamy, beach-y, **insert amazing synonym here**, bed is, but I will find it! Lying in the lines between a tropical resort pool-side hangout and a Swedish hippy bedroom, this four-poster sun lounger on steroids is what dreams are made of!

If you live somewhere that has little rain, this one’s for you! Search the thrift stores like a pirate for a four poster bed and a vintage baroque bed head. Ditch the curtains and add an airy ceiling made of light, white fabric.

For bedding, opt for monochrome minimalism, taking in as many prints and textures as you can darn well find!

Finally, adorn your bedside table with the damask table runner for an instant boho lift.

It looks so blissful that I could sleep there every night!

Oooh-la-la, it looks like the bohemian trend has taken a trip to our favorite European capital! The best thing about this area is that you don’t need a gold medal garden. Scruffy works just as well!

Candles, birdcages and other adornments are filled with roses and plant pots to perfection.

Give your old garden chairs a facelift by adorning them with a bohemian print table runner. Then sit back, relax and pretend to be Parisian… Repeat after me, ‘Bonjour’.

Fairy Hideout

This forest hideaway looks like somewhere couture pixies would hang out and drink green tea. If you have a large garden or yard, this idea would make a lovely ‘secret garden’ where you could head to for an escape. Well, if he gets a man cave…

Aged furniture is central to this fairy tale vibe, so why not search thrift stores for well-worn wooden furniture? Alternatively, create this vintage look yourself with paint and sandpaper.

Block your hideaway from the rest of the world by hanging the velvet sparkle tablecloth from a tree. Fill your table with potted plants in teacups, add random nick-knacks and enjoy!

Moroccan Wanderlust

Well isn’t this fit for royalty? Embrace your inner Moroccan Princess by creating an outdoor palace! Ok… let’s keep it real here, we don’t expect you to have this kind of grand structure in your back yard. But why not take the wanderlust-filled vibes of this abode and apply it to your porch or verandah.

Here’s how: take a large sofa or bench and top with black velvet cushions or a throw if you’re watching the pennies. Add exotic print cushions, making sure you are using a palette of clashing colors.

Embellish with metallic flashes, such as lanterns, foot rests and tables. Finally, hang an Eastern-inspired artwork over your seating; you can’t go wrong with a Buddha!

Erm…is this big enough to get married in? Jokes aside, this lace teepee and its accompanying seating area, are seriously like something from a dream.

I’m not an expert at teepee making, but I assume this baby takes a whole lotta lace to create! Once you’ve nailed it, add mismatched sofas and a round coffee table.

To add a sense of continuity and style, add cushions in a palette of burnt orange and garnet. The sophisticated two tone placemats are the perfect finishing touch for any unruly tables.
